Welcome back to Paradise Hotel. After last episode’s complex roommate selection process, the couples have shuffled up as follows:
Charla and Dave: Yellow Room
This left Andon left out of a roommate after being rejected by both Amy and Amanda, and he was forced to check out. Then two new women competed for the ticket to Paradise, and eventually the men selected Kavita over Desiree. Host Amanda greets the Los Angeles studio audience from Paradise and the show begins.
The episode starts in Paradise, where the guests are having drinks and discussing the upcoming arrival of Kavita. Kavita had told them the first thing she'd be doing in Paradise would be to find herself a roommate. Dave is sure she won't pick him, though the other guys tell him he's a possibility. Alex notes that Kavita told them she broke hearts and little else. "Wow, sounds like a fun girl, sounds like (guest) Amanda." Uh, if that was sarcasm, why didn't you pick Desiree to join you instead? Toni tells them the ragging session will end right here. She says they'll all get to meet Kavita, hot girl, smoking hottie, and all that. No judgments until she arrives. She then tells us in a confessional that they are always pumped up when somebody new is selected to come, but something crazy always happens.
On that note, one of the guys suggests a kissing contest. Most of the men seem eager to participate in it. Alex and Beau begin to host it. Guest Amanda doesn't seem to think much of the idea, but after Amy says she'll do it, Amanda agrees to go first. She gives quick pecks to each of the guys on the lips, then goes back to her room. She tells us she gave all of them a kiss, just a kiss, no tongue action. Next up is Toni. She gives Scott, Alex, Beau, and Zack some real action, but just gives a quick kiss to Dave. Charla is up next, and she gives longer kisses than guest Amanda to each of the guys, but nowhere near the action level Toni gave. Kristen follows Charla, and gives some pretty good action to everybody, including Dave. More kissing goes on, including Amy kissing Zack and Alex. One of the men noted that this is what it should have been like since the first day there. Kristen, Amy, and Toni all decide to kiss Beau at once, while Zack looks on, clearly jealous. Then Toni and Amy start pretending to make out together. At this point, Zack starts brooding again and starts to leave. Amy asks him where he's going. "Going to bed," he replies. He and Amy start arguing about her and Toni making out. He claims they were kissing. She claims she wasn't. Zack tells her she's lying, but the most Amy will admit to is a few pecks. He's also annoyed that she kissed Alex. He then goes on to say he's better looking than the other men, and that he's cocky about it. "I'm the man," he tells her.
OK, Zack, here's the trouble. You got this package named Amy on your first night together, when the two of you had sex within hours of meeting each other. When you buy into a party girl who is loose with her affections and body, that's exactly what you end up with. She's going to party, she's going to flirt, and she's probably going to run around on you. Nice conservative girls who remain loyal generally don't sleep with men on their first date.
It's 2:30 a.m., and Dave is sleeping in bed and Charla is running around outside. She joins Scott in his bed and climbs on top of him.
Scott: "You can't do this now, you know that?"
Charla: "Do what?"
Charla: "I'm not doing anything. I want to, but I'm not going to."
Scott: "You're pretty, you say the right things, you're dainty, you're quiet, you're elegant, petite, like, just a woman."
Charla: "Is it really hot in here?"
Scott: "Um, I'm really sorry, what?" He then turns on his side.
Charla: "It's just... why are you turning on your side; you're turning sideways there is such a reason."
Scott: "No I'm not, I just don't want to do this. Get your hands off."
Charla: (giggles, sighs). "Why does this always happen to me? Seriously?"
Scott: "Seriously what?"
Charla climbs back on top of Scott. He tells her, "Be the good roommate. You gotta be the good roommate. Go over there and..."
Scott: "I'm sure he's mad."
Charla: "He doesn't have to know."
Scott: "Please, I'm gonna go to the bathroom. Excuse me."
Charla: "Why, because you can't perform when you have to pee?"
Scott: "Would you get off?"
Charla gets off him, then asks him, "What if I'm gone when you come back?"
They repeat that a few times, then Scott tells her to go to bed. He tells her she's going to hate him, think he's nuts, but she should trust him. Charla responds that Scott is going to think he's nuts. She leaves.
Later on, Dave is in the big bed and Charla is in the mini bed. She asks him if he's falling asleep. He's not, then asks her if she's crying. She tells him she's fine, though she's obviously upset and in tears. She then tells him she's just going to do what she has to in order to stay. Dave tells her she's doing fine so far, and that she's still there. She tells him if she remains there, she's going to be proud of herself. Dave then tells her there isn't much she can do, and perhaps he should have the new girl pick him for a roommate. Then he can pick her again. Simple strategy. Charla dismisses the idea, telling him Kavita is going to pick who she wants to pick. Dave says she's going to pick Zack, then goes on to say that he's all upset with all the pretty boys he's with. Charla tells him they are all Backstreet Boys, which prompts a laugh from Dave. "Oh, it's so annoying," he says. He muses that eventually somebody is going to want an older, smart guy. Charla tells him to do what he has to do and notes everybody's situation is different. Apparently, Dave takes that as an invitation to jump into bed with her, because he gets out and goes over to her bed, despite Charla telling him NO repeatedly. She warns him not to make her uncomfortable, like he's about to do. With that, he stalks off.1 2 3 4 Next-->
